- The Facts:
Despite public declarations to support human rights and wage a "war against terrorism" - both Canada and the U.S. engage in big business with Saudi Arabia which both directly and indirectly aids terrorist regimes in the Middle East.
- Reflect On:
Despite the revolving door of political ideologies and parties assuming power, foreign policy and regime-change agendas often remain unchanged with each successive administration. Who is truly in control of shaping global affairs?
In what has become a very public and highly covered social media spat between Canada and Saudi Arabia, the two countries have jousted over twitter exchanges that implicate human rights violations. The social media feud was ignited when the Canadian foreign affairs department called out Saudi Arabia’s regime for imprisoning human rights activists in a pointed tweet from Canada’s Foreign Minister.
“Very alarmed to learn that Samar Badawi, Raif Badawi’s sister, has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. Canada stands together with the Badawi family in this difficult time, and we continue to strongly call for the release of both Raif and Samar Badawi.” ~Chyrstia Freeland, Canadian Foreign Minister.
The Canadian foreign affairs department bolstered this stance with a tweet of its own, calling for the immediate release of the women and human rights activists.
Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women’s rights activists in #SaudiArabia, including Samar Badawi. We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful #humanrights activists. ~@CanadaFP, (Canada Foreign Policy)
Saudi Arabia responded with scathing criticism of Canada, including a caustic tweet from a pro-Saudi Government Organization which featured a doctored image of an Air Canada plane aimed at Toronto’s skyline. This veiled thread was eerily reminiscent to the 9/11 attacks on the US, in which 2,996 people were killed after 19 hijackers flew airliners into the World Trade Center’s twin towers and the Pentagon. Fifteen of the hijackers were Saudi nationals.
Riyadh responded to a call from Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland to release civil society activists with an abrupt severing of diplomatic and trade ties, sending home Canadian ambassadors and boycotting Canadian products including grain and maple syrup. Ironically, Saudi Arabia launched a laughable and impotent critique of Canada’s human rights record as the monarchy was publicly crucifying a man in Mecca in a scene reminiscent of the dark ages.
A Deeper Look Into Saudi-Canadian Relations
Lost in the media buzz of this public Twitter spat is the fact that Canada has continually and consistently supported the Saudi Autocracy as a major Arms Sales trading partner. Indeed – Canada has funded, supported and aided the worst of Saudi Arabia’s abuses, rendering it complicit in its war crimes and international humans rights violations in Yemen and across the region.
On August 9th, the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen bombed a school bus killing dozens of civilians including 29 children. Despite this atrocity, there hasn’t been a word of criticism from Canadian officials.
Business As Usual
Trudeau has been regarded as a stalwart of liberal internationalism – an antithesis to the Trump, Le Pen, Orban nationalism. However, as it pertains to challenging the military-industrial complex world order, Trudeau has preserved the status quo. Canada appropriately criticized the human rights violations in Saudi Arabian society, but has remained muted on the war crimes and international human rights violations that Saudi Arabia has committed in Yemen.
In 2014, the Conservative Canadian government made a deal to sell $15 billion worth of military vehicles to Saudi Arabia. The deal was criticized as Saudi Arabia had previously used similar vehicles to attack protesters and activists both in Bahrain and in the Eastern Province in Saudi Arabia. Despite this, there was no shift in policy when the Liberals came into office, as Trudeau’s government decided to preserve the Saudi arms deal that was brokered from the previous government.
As of today, Saudi forces and its proxies have killed more than 10,000 people in Yemen, two-thirds of whom are civilians. According to the BBC, “The fighting and a partial blockade by the coalition has also left 22 million people in need of humanitarian aid, created the world’s largest food security emergency, and led to a cholera outbreak that is thought to have affected a million people.”
Hélène Laverdière of the New Democratic party pointed to reports of the Saudi kingdom’s attacks on its own civilians as well as the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen, where more than 3 million people have been displaced.
“So I am asking the prime minister, what does he think about Canada potentially being complicit in international human rights violations?” Laverdière asked. “How can we say Canada’s foreign policy is progressive and feminist when we continue to sell arms to Saudi Arabia?”
Trump and the NeoCon Artists
As unsavory as Canada’s relationship with Saudi Arabia is, it pales in comparison to the corruption and deceit inherent in the Saudi-U.S. long-standing alliance. Under the Trump regime, Riyadh and Washington are closer than ever and have been enjoying an exceptionally close relationship – tense during the administration of former U.S. President Barack Obama – who distanced his administration from both Saudi Arabia and Israel while seeking to thaw relations with Iran. Both Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and President Trump (along with Israel) have now teamed up to bully a common rival: Iran.

In 2016, candidate Trump promised to build infrastructure and jobs at home – and to stay out of foreign entanglements. In fact, Trump repeatedly criticized Obama for intervening in Libya and Syria – and campaigned on getting the U.S. out of endless wars. That was all bluster and empty rhetoric, of course, as President Trump has been a NeoCon’s dream come true, bent to set the world on fire in a rapid devolution cycle via a foreign policy that is furthering the criminal objectives of the George W. Bush Administration. John Bolton – the NeoCon of NeoCons – was a prominent architect of the illegal Iraq war invasion who to this day praises the decision to invade Iraq which led to the murder of millions of innocent civilians. Instead of standing trial for war crimes, Bolton has been rewarded with legitimacy as Trump appointed him to be his National Security Adviser. Since being appointed, Bolton has actively called for regime change in Iran and is shamelessly lobbying for all-out war.
Soon after assuming the presidency, Trump cowardly walked away from the landmark Iran Nuclear Deal, which was an immense, multinational diplomatic achievement that took several years to manifest. Simultaneously, Trump and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud signed a gargantuan Arms deal from the United States totaling US$110 billion.
New Hat Alert: “Make Oligarchy Great Again.”
Trump’s supporters often characterize him as being an outsider and somebody who challenges the Establishment Order in favor of the common interest. Nothing could be further from the truth – particularly as it pertains to foreign policy. Just like Hillary Clinton, Trump’s business ties with Saudi Arabia are well-documented. Trump – a self purported “billionaire” – reported a 13 percent increase in hotel business revenue for the first three months of 2018 thanks to a visit from the Saudi Arabian crown prince. During his first year in office, dozens of foreign governments spent hundreds of thousands of dollars at Trump-owned properties, including a Saudi Arabian public relations company that spent $270,000 at his D.C. hotel. The ethics watchdog group Public Citizen said the Saudis were trying to “seduce Trump” by staying there.
This is just one example of the ethical and financial improprieties that this president has brought to Washington. Trump is profiting personally from foreign dignitaries seeking favoritism by patronizing his many businesses – and favors are given in return. American foreign policy favoritism is effectively being used to kill Yemeni civilians and children, thanks to the Trump-Saudi arms deal which has delivered the world’s deadliest bombs (courtesy of Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics) to the Saudi kingdom for whatever use they see fit, even if it violates all standards of international human rights protections.
Trump’s foreign policy is neither nuanced nor knowledgeable, and has been expertly exploited by special interest groups seeking to finalize the mission set forth by the Project for a New American Century NeoCons: to take out seven countries in the Middle East, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran. In just months after President Trump was elected, he had already been usurped by a veiled, shadow government that sees an opportunity to exploit Trump’s lack of principled vision for their own destructive purposes, with Trump as a willing accomplice.
You simply cannot be fighting for “liberal democracy”, “human rights” and “peace” when you are funding (directly and indirectly via Saudi arms deals) the expansion of organizations like the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda (who never even existed until the West intervened in the Mideast) and supporting the occupation of the Palestinian people by an extremist Netanyahu apartheid regime in Israel. Yet, all we hear about are the “evils of Iran” – despite the fact that it was not Iran – but Saudi Arabia – which had its hands in 9/11 and continues to export extremist ideology and propaganda through its madrasas and support of arms and money to organizations like ISIS & Al-Nusra. It is Saudi Arabia – not Iran – which is the world’s #1 exporter of terrorism.
The New Old World Order
The New York-based group Human Rights Watch warned that the worsening spat between Ottawa and Riyadh “should alarm Saudi Arabia’s allies and all rights respecting countries.” However, the official response from the European Union and the U.S. has been muted, indicative of the deep financial ties and corrupted, oligarchical influence that permeates the U.S.-Saudi relationship.
While Canada’s foreign minister may criticize Saudi Arabia’s treatment of women’s rights activists — and the U.S. may publicly call for a “war on terrorism” – both nations are engaging in business as usual with the Saudi kingdom, which has enabled the proliferation of terrorism across the region and the continued suppression of gross human rights violation.
Dogs Can Detect Lung Cancer With 97 Percent Accuracy
- The Facts:
Early detection provides the best opportunity for lung cancer survival; however, lung cancer is difficult to detect early because symptoms do not often appear until later stages. Dogs were able to help solve that issue.
- Reflect On:
Why do we use animals for experiments? Unless they are willing and have a loving home and are provided for, animals should never be used as lab rats or for scientific purposes. What makes us think we have the right to do that?
Animals are a precious gift to humanity, and we have so many lessons to learn from them. If you were an empathetic, benevolent alien looking down on planet Earth, no doubt you’d be heartbroken at and terrified of the way we treat animals. We slaughter them by the billions, destroy their homes, experiment on them, and worse. That being said, the ‘good’ side of humanity loves animals, and there are a lot of activist efforts out there that are speaking up for those who do not have a voice, not to mention the ever growing movement promoting a plant-based diet. We are making progress.
Another important point regarding animals is the fact that we know so little about them. We think we know, but the truth is we don’t know, and there is so much more to discover, especially with regards to certain abilities they may possess like clairvoyance, precognition, telepathy, and other types of extra-sensory perception that human beings may have dormant within them as well.
I recently came across a study regarding three beagles successfully showing that they are capable of identifying lung cancer by scent, which is the first step in identifying specific biomarkers for the disease. The researchers hypothesized that their abilities may lead to the development of a new type of cancer screening method that is fairly inexpensive. Although we still need more research on the factors in our environment that are causing cancer in the first place, this is still great to see.
However, it’s only great if these animals are not being used solely for the purpose of study and are living happy and healthy lives because, as you may not know, beagles are the dogs most commonly used for scientific experiments, which are cruel and inhumane. At the end of the day, animals should not be used for such purposes. They are here as our companions, as part of our human family.
These dogs were able to tell the difference between blood serum samples that were taken from patients with malignant lung cancer and health controls with, as the study points out, 97 percent accuracy. The double blind study was published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.
Thomas Quinn, the lead author of the study and professor at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, said, “We’re using the dogs to sort through the layers of scent until we identify the tell-tale biomarkers. There is still a great deal of work ahead, but we’re making good progress.”
Again, I can’t help but wonder: Do these dogs have families? Are they being loved and cared for? Or are they simply being used for lab experiments? The thought of that is heartbreaking, and it makes me not even want to support or write about a study like this, but I couldn’t find any details about the lives of the dogs.
It sounds like they are simply ‘lab rats,’ given the description of the study, but again, we don’t know. They were led into a room with blood serum samples at nose level. Some samples came from patients with non-small cell lung cancer; others were drawn from healthy controls. After sniffing a sample, the dogs sat down to indicate a positive finding for cancer or moved on if none was detected.
“Samples from 10 donors (6 women and 4 men) were used in the testing phase. Their ages ranged from 26 to 80 years (mean, 58.2 years). The samples from female donors (mean age, 64 years) came from 3 black women, 2 white women, and 1 Hispanic woman. The samples from male donors (mean age, 49.5 years) came from 2 black men, 1 white man, and 1 man of mixed race. Canine No. 1 indicated a positive sample on 10 of the 10 cancer samples and 1 of the 40 control samples during his test runs. Canine No. 2 indicated a positive sample on 10 of the 10 cancer samples and 0 of the 40 control samples during her test runs. Canine No. 3 indicated a positive sample on 9 of the 10 cancer samples and 2 of the 40 control samples during her test runs. (From study).”
A Few Words About Cancer
I often become frustrated at the bombardment of “cancer awareness” advertisements, or when I see the Heart & Stroke Foundation serving processed meats at their fund raisers. In many cases, the companies raising money for cancer research are putting out products that are causing the problem in the first place. Why do we constantly raise money for cancer research and become so emotional and “patriotic” about ‘finding a cure’ and ‘fighting cancer’ without ever acknowledging the causes of cancer? Why do we see advertisements of cancer patients fighting cancer in order to entice us into donating? Why do people proudly fight cancer and go through conventional treatments without ever being aware of alternative, more successful and effective treatments? What is going on here?
When it comes to cancer awareness, all of us should really be tweeting and posting about environmental pesticides, electromagnetic radiation, processes foods and meat, unhealthy lifestyles, sugar, emotional baggage, trauma, stress, and several other factors that are clearly causing cancer.
Why is it that there are only a couple of accepted treatments for cancer that oncologists are legally able to recommend?
There are so many head-scratchers when it comes to cancer, and any cancer awareness efforts should be bombarded with ‘f**ck glyphosate,’ and things of that nature. That would be REAL cancer awareness.
Animals are not to be used as experiments, but I wanted to present this info simply because, as I mentioned earlier, there are so many amazing, good, positive things about them. Their abilities go far beyond what we know, and when it comes to dogs in particular, they are nothing but of service to others. If you have a dog, you know what I am talking about, and in many cases they already know things about you and your biology that you may not be aware of, unless you are really in tune with them.
Missing 411 – Examining Unexplained Disappearances In The Wilderness of North America
- The Facts:
Missing 411: The Hunted is a film that explores the strange disappearances that are happening all over the North American wilderness. Investigations into these disappearances have yielded some very strange and almost paranormal findings.
- Reflect On:
With so many missing persons cases, especially in National Parks, why doesn't the National Parks Service initiate a proper investigation? Why is there so much secrecy, hesitation and unacknowledgement surrounding this topic?
I bet you didn’t know that there is an unexplained phenomenon linked to how people are going missing in National parks in the United States. This phenomenon is actually quite common, and there are countless missing cases where absolutely no trace of the person has been found. In other cases, people’s belongings were eerily found weeks after search parties completed their work, in tidy as if people literally melted off the face of the earth – all found in areas that had been completely searched.
Yes, it’s popular National parks that are notorious for these disappearances, but despite the fact that many people have gone missing, the National Parks Service does not keep a record of missing persons.
A number of people have investigated this phenomenon, and perhaps the most prominent is David Paulides, a retired officer from the San Jose, CA, Police Department. Since retirement, he has spent the majority of his time researching missing person cases, and writing about them through several published books. Recently, he as released a film called Missing 411: The Hunted, which dives deeper into this wildly fascinating subject using specific examples and cases that they examine.
The Government Involved In Missing Persons?
Paulides does not speculate much about these missing persons, but one disturbing thought he shares is the idea that the government, or some faction of government agencies, may be hiding information regarding these people. They are denying and failing to properly acknowledge the fact that there is something truly strange and disturbing happening which is mysterious on its own.
You would think that given how often this type of thing occurs, there would be some type of public disclosure and awareness campaign.
Paulides’ interest in this topic actually came from conversations he had with off-duty park rangers. That’s how he found out that there was a plethora of disappearances in National parks without any sort of explanation. In the film, he also hints to the fact that the National Parks Service doesn’t put in enough effort with regards to investigating this type of thing.
Let’s be clear, it’s not just disappearances without a trace happening, but rather some have occurred under very weird circumstances. In the film, you see examples of park rangers showing Paulides things recurring discoveries of neatly placed clothes of those who went missing – in areas that had already been searched.
“The ranger described to me, if you were standing straight up and you just had your pants on and you melted directly into your pants… that’s what it looked like to him. The pants were laying on the ground in a very neat pile,” Paulides said.
Paulides has investigated cases not only involving adults, but also many young children vanishing instantaneously from their guardians’ sides in a short period of time, which makes them seem undeniably paranormal.
One of the places I’ve investigated myself where people have also had strange experiences regarding missing persons is a place called Brown Mountain, North Carolina. There are a number of similar overlaps to what is explored in Missing 411.

U.S. Government Has Debris/Material From UFOs Says High Ranking Government Official
- The Facts:
Luis Elizondo, a former high ranking Department of Defence official and part of the TTSA academy recently confirmed that the US government has in their possession material from a UFO craft.
- Reflect On:
Those new to this may be surprised, but for researchers in this field it's not. We have enough evidence suggesting that some of these craft are extraterrestrial, so how much does the 'government know,' what about the ET beings? Who knows what?
For those who have been into the UFOlogy subject for a very long time, all of the disclosure of UFOs within mainstream media should come as no surprise. This type of presentation from mainstream media is a complete 180 degree flip flop from years past, where what we saw mostly was shaming and ridiculing of the subject. Despite the fact that “everything” seems to be in a “process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world” (General Carlos Castro Cavero, 1979, source), in the past, what we saw was “an official campaign of ridicule and secrecy,” as Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter told the New York Times decades ago. (source)
So, why all of the serious mainstream attention all of a sudden? Could there be some sort of deception planned? We must always think critically about any topic that the mainstream chooses to cover, and how they cover it. We must do so because, since the inception of Operation Mockingbird, a US government program headed by the CIA to control the perception of the masses through mainstream media, multiple award-winning mainstream media journalists have come out and ‘blown the whistle,’ claiming that these outlets are still mouthpieces for intelligence agencies, governments, corporations, and elitist groups. You can see some examples and read more about that here. We’ve been spoon-fed lies for years, so why would it be any different with the topic of UFOs?
The point I’d like to hammer home, however, is that we are dealing with a very real phenomenon. And that is made evident by the amount of witness testimonies, video and photo proof, concealment of information, and ridicule from media that we’ve seen for decades. Just like 9/11 was real, and just like war is real, the explanations behind these events in history always seem to be manipulated for some sort of ulterior motive. That’s important to keep in mind here. Are they going to try and spin a very real phenomenon into some sort of threat?
When it comes to this topic, it leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. From science to technology and much more, everything changes when the masses are confronted with the realization that we are not alone, and that we have been visited. There are many who, what, where, why and when’s to be answered, and these answers, I assure you, will not come from mainstream media. But right now, it seems we are in the age of disclosure, as the media is finally acknowledging that these things are real.
Not only are they real, but as Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell once said, “yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” You can view a clip of him saying that here.
Having been a UFO researcher for a very long time, coming across information suggesting that crash retrieval programs are real is nothing new. But to have something like this leak out into the mainstream is quite significant, and this happened recently on Fox News when Louis Elizondo was interviewed by Tucker Carlson. Elizondo is a career intelligence officer whose experience includes working with the U.S. Army, the Department of Defense, the National Counterintelligence Executive, and the Director of National Intelligence.
He was also the director of the Pentagon’s AATIP program, which stands for the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. This program was recently disclosed by the Pentagon as a program to study UFOs. I can tell you, it’s not the only program related to UFOs, and these programs could be taking in trillions of dollars. But AATIP was the program that was disclosed and blasted out by mainstream media not long ago.
On May 31st, Carlson asked him: “Do you believe, based on your decade of serving in the US government on this question, that the US government has in its possession any material from one of these aircrafts?
Elizondo replied: “I do. Yes.”
Carlson then asked: “You think the US government has debris from a UFO in its possession right now?”
Elizondo replied: “Unfortunately, Tucker, I really have to be careful of my NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement), I really can’t go into a lot more detail than that.”
Again, I am sharing this because it’s going mainstream. I’ve written about extraterrestrial technology before.
You can view a clip of this exchange from Fox News here.
A Little More Information About Supposed UFO technology
The most recent information making its way around the UFO community comes in the form of a recently leaked document, which includes notes taken by legendary scientist Dr. Eric Davis during a meeting he had with Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson, former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, regarding extraterrestrial space crafts. This meeting concerned a discussion Wilson had with Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, which Mitchell publicly confirmed a few years ago. This is interesting because this leaked document just came out a few months ago.
You can view those documents and read more about that story, and see that clip of Edgar Mitchell confirming the meeting, here. It’s a really good one illustrating how this topic goes well beyond the government.
Dr. Davis is a very well-known scientist and quite the legend. For many years, he was a member of the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (owned by Robert Bigelow) and was the Chief Science Officer of EarthTech Int’l, Inc. and the Institute for Advanced Studies in Austin, Texas. He is now the Owner/Chief Executive/Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics, which consults and contracts for the Department of Defense. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Early Universe, Cosmology and Strings Group at the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research at Baylor University in Waco, TX.
The leaked notes from Davis expose the fact that the U.S. Government has in its possession UFO technology that was not made by humans, but by extraterrestrial beings from another planet.
Davis also recently made remarks on the comments made by Elizondo in his interview with Tucker Carlson, stating that,
“Luis Elizondo’s very brief answer to Tucker Carlson’s question about whether the US government is in possession of recovered crashed and landed UFO technology hardware is 1,000 % accurate. My national security NDAs prevent me from adding any further comment on this.”
The source for this quote comes from a very well-known researcher in the field, James Iandoli, who reached out to Davis after his comments on Fox and posted the response on his twitter account.
When talking about the crash retrieval of UFOs, I always like to quote former Canadian Defence Minister, Paul Hellyer, when he said that the protocol is to “shoot first and ask questions after.”
It’s not just the U.S. government either, this is probably something multiple nations have within their possession.
Dr. David Clarke is an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England. He was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13, and regularly comments in national and international media on UFOs.
These documents reveal how the RAF expressed great interest in finding UFOs to help come up with new and innovative ways to become their enemies during the Cold War. Apparently, they were gathering evidence that other nations had collected this technology.
You can read more about that story here.
A classic example would be the CIA keeping tabs on developments in Germany, as explained in this document, which looked into “a German news paper” that “recently published an interview with George Klein, famous engineer and aircraft expert, describing the experimental construction of ‘flying saucers’ carried out by him from 1941 to 1945.”
Here’s another document that goes on to mention an experiment described by Klein:
The “flying saucer” reached an altitude of 12,400 meters within 3 minutes and a speed of 2,200 kilometers per hour. Klein emphasized that in accordance with German plans, the speed of these “saucers” would reach 4,000 kilometers per hour. One difficulty, according to Klein, was the problem of obtaining the materials to be used for the construction of the “saucers,” but even this had been solved by German engineers toward the end of 1945, and construction on the objects was scheduled to begin, Klein added.
You can read more about that here.
There are too many examples, it’s not just limited to the Roswell incident. Here’s an article I wrote recently about another story regarding a crashed extraterrestrial craft that exists within the lore of UFOlogy:
The truth is literally out there.
UFO and extraterrestrial visitation isn’t a bad thing, as it does not seem to be ‘deceptive.’ It is, however, a very real reality. The only plausible possibility for any ‘deception’ to occur would be with regards to the official explanation of ‘them,’ why they are here and if they represent some sort of threat or not. The fact that multiple powerful people and the governments they seem to puppeteer have been trying desperately to keep a lid on this information for a very long time is a hint to that.
How much do governments, and those who sit above them, really know about UFOs and extraterrestrials, anyways?
